This work should provide an analysis of standard algorithms for sorting, searching, and traversing data structures implemented in Solidity, towards refining the domain of application.
Model network topology (e.g. Barabási–Albert, Erdős–Rényi) and node behavior (e.g. bitcoin, ethereum, etc.) to calculate resource requirements such as queue lengths, confirmation times, cpu use, throughput, memory, and network traffic. Using stochastic modelling, the characteristics of any newly-proposed blockchain algorithms and architectures can be analysed, analytically or via simulation.
Rather than blocks, is it feasible to operate on atomic quantities, such as individual 32-bit samples in an arbitrary-length train? Does the discrete chain become a continuous rope?
We need to develop new technical frameworks, processes and protocols to allow intelligent smart contracts, with IoT, enabled data and to instant payments.
